"Molly is in a huff. The neighbors are planning a party and she hasn’t been invited. What Molly doesn’t know is that the ladies plan a surprise nomination of ’Berg for President’ at the Ladies Auxiliary"

"Molly’s family circle is meeting. Jake is upset because at the last meeting, someone called Miami. Apparently it was the Goldbergs’ deadbeat cousin Muttel, who then arrives, saying he has a heart condition. His stay at the Goldbergs’ house gets longer and longer. Towards the beginning of the program, Tante Johanna comes in speaking Yiddish"

"On Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement, the viewing audience is taken with the Goldbergs to the synagogue for the solemn Kol Nidre services. Uncle David is upset because his son Solly the Doctor is going to temple with his father-in-law. It turns out that Solly’s baby is sick and he doesn’t want David to know. The final ten minutes of the program consist of a cantor’s choir singing the service"

"Jake and his partner Mendel are going to be listed in a Who’s who book of the dressmaking industry. Everyone is proud, but when the men sit down to write their short biographies, each takes credit for the idea of half-size dresses. The argument ends when Tante Elke arrives and announces that it was originally her idea"

"David’s friend Moishe is in love, but is warned that his fiancee is a difficult woman who will be his ruin. David determines to save him from this fate by charming the lady himself, but instead falls in love with her"

"Cousin Muttel comes to visit the Goldbergs’, and wants a job in Jake’s dress factory. Knowing that Muttel is a bad businessman, Jake doesn’t want to hire him. As expected, Muttel causes problems, but he also wins a washing machine in a raffle. When David wins another one, the Goldbergs decide to let Muttel go into the laundry business with the two machines."

"There are big preparations at the Goldberg household as Uncle David plans a visit to the fancy New Rochelle home of his son "Solly, the Doctor." Upon his arrival though, he finds himself frequently left alone, and becomes bored and unhappy. Molly arranges his return in such a way that his pride is salvaged"

"After one blintz too many up at Pincus Pines, Molly’s bulging out all over. She decides it’s time for reducing school--TV guide, August 31, 1954. Nellie Singleton, who works for a reducing salon, recommends Molly go on a diet, but Molly flunks the reducing course."

"Molly returns to New York full of tales of Pincus Pines. She tries to urge Tante Elke to take a vacation at the resort"

"The Goldbergs are still at Pincus Pines but the vacation is over. The kitchen help have walked out and Molly and crew volunteer to prepare the meals"

"Molly sticks her nose into a domestic pie and out fly the angry words of Mr. Pincus’ three stepsons. The boys have decided they want a bigger part in the business affairs at Pincus Pines"

"Jake, Uncle David, and Mr. Pincus make a series of investments on the advice of an impressive guest at Pincus Pines. Their financial advisor is not all he appears to be, but the advice turns out to be good nonetheless."

"In the midst of the Goldbergs’ Pincus Pines vacation, all the ladies want to leave because in years past, a certain divorcee has occupied their husbands’ time. Pincus, upset because all his business will depart, asks Molly’s help. She offers Jake the assignment of keeping the divorcee busy, but he too becomes infatuated."

"The Goldbergs are off to Pincus Pines, the Catskills resort. Rosalie is upset because she is the only young person there, but soon a young doctor (a former hotel employee) arrives. He and Rosalie start up a romance, but all the women guests make arrangements for their daughters to meet the doctor. Molly solves the problem by getting the girls to dance with members of the band, while Rosalie and the doctor are left alone"

"Mr. Pincus is visiting the Goldbergs just prior to their family vacation at Pincus Pines, a Catskills resort. Jake wants to quit his business, and decides that he should go into a partnership with Pincus. Meanwhile Katy, the Pincus Pines cook arrives. In love with Pincus, she is upset for fear any new partner in his business will put her out of a job. Molly and Katy then conspire to discourage the merger"

"Molly and Tante Elka are the generals of rival factions as they battle over the name for Elka’s new grandchild. Elka, the sentimentalist, wants it named for her mother. Practical Molly wants the child named according to the wishes of rich Uncle Simon, who has promised the baby’s newly unemployed father a job, if he will name the child after Uncle Simon’s beloved mother"

I might be able to get plot lines for more DuMont episodes if I'm lucky.
